    Thanks. I have about 6 or 7 pairs of shell, and only one pair blooms, and excessively I might add. it doesn't really bother me, but thought that maybe there was a "solution."

    It's when the oils in the leather are squeezed out in the creases.

    Your experience is valid, no correction required. We all have different-sized feet and I would bet that some of us who are on the border of D and E will end up with too loose a fit depending on the shoe. I also think there must be some sort of variance in the size of the benchmade shoes that affect the fit.

    Happy Friday. Good day for a nice combo of USA-made Bills Khakis and Alden's Ravello WT boot.

    Thanks! Although I love my LWBs, there is something about Alden's boots that makes them very handsome.
